it was a little prehappy birthday. we went there. we went to a little place in puerto rico. we wrote in the sand happy birthday because remember the tropical storm was coming. however we snuck out just before it. we had a magnificent time and my favorite thing is going to come up later in the show but it was a guy there named renae who i will show you his picture later who preached a gaw prepared som lots of lime. >> and you said the tortillas are hot. >> he's my favorite thing. his name is renae. he has a restaurant called af r avocado. >> why are you taking a picture like that. >> because everybody will love it. >> i am now officially very, very, very big. >> i have my own bobble head from depends because even though you're turning
granny panties apparently they think i have now -- they are called under awareness. they are trying to reduce the stigma of products related with inkcontinence incontinence. i would say enjoy 50. >> people are talking about the animal segment. >> well, you know never what's going to happen. regis did come in and i was so happy to see him. jenna did the show on thursday with me. regis came on friday. knowing that anything can happen during an animal segment anyway but when you introduce writregi into the mix. you're going to see. >> bird flying. are you serious? that's not funny. you'll never see me here again. believe me.
never. let's here it for the bird. >> you better have something to give -- >> they are wonderful. >> he's pooping on my head, i'm k convinced of it. >> hey everybody look at kathy lee. hi, hey. look over here you'll never see this again. what's wrong with you people. everybody is completely ignored. it's in a days work. it just went on and on. >> wait a second -- >> it was unbelievable. >> was it nesting. what was happening up there. >> it was doing something weird and i kind of liked it. after a while i bonded with the bird. i don't know. it was funny. thanks regis. he came over. i couldn't get rid of him. he came over saturday night. it was cassidy's birthday. there's elaine batista and
stanley moore. i think that's frank. it was her 21st birthday. happy birthday to cass. >> i am so happy. i woke up this morning and guess what was in my entrance way, my son's disgusting shoes which means everybody is home. now leading from that bird to another bird. >> this is interesting. if you guys ever seen the traffic cams that are up above or the sky cams and sometimes you see an insect crawling across it or a bird flying by it and you go oh, look at that. well, this is crazy. there was one of these hijacked traffic cams by a tucan who saw his own reflection and liked it. i can't believe it's just a tucan flying around. >> where are they. >> well this is in brazil. they are everywhere. come on. >> we have a couple of nice guests.
>> friends of kathy ryan. your assistant. hope you enjoy the show. >> even though it's a big week for you. it's kind of sad. forbes has just come out with their big list of highest paid and you're in the on it again. we will are to redo your deal sweet heart. these are actresses though. some of them are surprising. the third highest paid jennifer aniston at $31 million because of the reruns of friends and vitamin water. very lucrative deals like that. jennifer laurence that big year. $34 million and birthday girl, $51 million for sandra bullock because of the movie gravity. she was going to make between 70 and $90 million depending on how it does. good to get back end. not good to have one but it's good to get one. >> excuse me. >> also in the top six angelina
jolie and cameron diaz. also they say playing hard on a first debt good for men but not women. men don't enjoy women who do. i disagree with the whole thing. i always disagree with these things. >> i think everybody likes a little mystery. you don't want someone who says quickly yes to everything. want to have to work a little bit. >> we want the guy to be nice too. >> i think they are missing the point on that. i think the point to be hard to get to get the first date. that's how mrs. george clooney she said no to george clooney three times. that had never happened to him in his whole life so now he's intrigued. so next time he finally says yes you know he's sitting there going tell me about you. you know what you're right.
>> yes, yes, yes. >> women who are suspicious of men who are too attentive. i agree with that. i'm talking about not attentive but like weird. >> soccerish. >> unfortunately you don't know who you are. okay. anyway, yeah, i don't know. i don't think coy uld go on onef those dating things at all. when i see the commercials and i guy goes i got my first flirt in ten minutes, yeah. but there is something -- it's creepy. you don't know who these people are. >> you mow whknow when you meet someone, sometimes you instantly click. >> you had chemistry with boots the first time you met him. it was at an event you did not want to go to. nameless set it up. that's well over a year later and good for you for keeping it a secret. >> i know, right. is it still a secret.
not anymore. >> yes, it is granny panties. so these are all the things about 50. reading glasses. >> yes you already needed those but not as strong. >> this is really the first year that i've been using them. are those really in there? >> on second thought. i didn't think that through. >> i saw this on the news the other day. i thought this is interesting. a restaurant is giving a 15% discount to some diners who they see praying before they have their meal. we always do as a family. when you and i hoda we do it when we go out. it's called mary's gourmet diner. on facebook he could get a 15% discount. it could be a moment to show silence or gratitude it could be
a prayer. they say it's for any prayer or meditation. just to show that you're grateful for the food given. often the first thing you say when the food is put down is i thought i ordered cheese. >> we often don't say thank you to the person who delivered it much yet the person who made it possible. >> we'd love to know. i bet there are facebook people who will come back saying 90% say they like it. they are not telling you how to pray but they think if more people had an attitude of gratitude in our nation anyway instead of the wining and the moaning that we get -- >> you're right, i'm not talking about hard core -- >> careful. >> you know, yeah. >> you're right. >> okay. so what does bee yawns beyonce y about that infamous elevator incident. >> this is kind of a cool movie. they are going to answer the question.
>> all right daniel radcilff just celebrated his 25th birthday. he's probably one of the most recognized actors in the world. >> you may know actress zoey. one of our most favorite films it's complicated. they are teaming up in a very romantic comedy what if. daniel plays wallace who finds himself falling for her
character but when she meets her boyfriend things don't work out as expected. take a look. >> did you use contacts? >> in the bathroom. >> over there. oh, my god. are you okay. >> sorry. >> everybody is okay. >> hello. congratulations on this charming movie. it's whimsical. your character becomes the animation thing and you're an animator in it, right. >> yes, i am. i have to say it looks like you killed my boyfriend. >> if someone goes see the movie you will know that that happens.
but it is really funny but you'll laugh again it will be great. it's actually funny the second time around. >> you know what's great. this is the age old question can a man and a woman just be very, very good friends? >> is that what you're kind of exploring in this. >> yeah. absolutely. my character is somebody whose living totally in denial of his feelings. he meets her at the beginning of the movie and falls completely in love with her immediately but he has a broken heart. it's easier to be sort of cyn cynical but love than vulnerable. so he meets zoey, falls in love. she has a boyfriend. i kind of deny my feelings of love and say, well, i will just try and be her friend and we'll see how that goes. >> how does that work out for you. >> go see the move eemovie. i cannot tell you. >> i can see how you are both very drawn to this movie. you're known for your blockbuster. >> your grandfather -- why do
you take a little movie like this that you hope people are going to see? >> you know, i just -- i think honestly where the most interesting scripts are often being produced by independent movies. this was the best script, the funniest and it's not an hour and half of people throwing around jokes. it has emotional power in the same way that great romantic comedies where harry met sally do. >> your character, you have the best timing in this. when you deliver a line. tell us about what gets into your head when you're playing your character. >> i don't know. i think we had a really fun time together. i think when you're acting when you're thinking about yourself that's a bad time. concentrating on dan and he made me laugh everyday. >> were you guys friends beforehand. >> we had met once i guess three years before we did the movie
and sort of based on that meeting could probably have known that it would not be incredibly unpleasant to make a movie with each other. >> the sexual tension -- >> actually everyday i would go in -- >> it hits theaters this friday. >> that was the greatest moment i've ever had in any interview i've ever done in 15 years. i've been on this specific show 20 times. my favorite thing to ever happen. >> let's rerun that. all right. you're both adorable. what can i say. >> i'm being used to doing interviews with my whole career where i can't say anything because it will be terrible and that just happened. >> it's your birthday and we made you a gift. just to further this. so yeah. it's turned around.
>> zoey has got some kind of theme. >> i filled it with flowers and smockers because what else does a girl want, right? >> oh, my gosh. hoda. >> i've learned a lot about zoey today. all right kids. thank you so much. charming movie. it opens in theaters this friday. all right well what if your a big winner today. what is surprising about our fan of the week. but probably not. and while you were out taking care of business, there was some busy stuff going on in hollywood. we got all the scoop in today's buzz. rob schutto is back. >> we need oxygen for daniel. energy! energy, energy, energy. it's inside of all of us. even gary here.
